Die Libanesin Yulianna Yussef ist eine wunderschöne Frau. Sie hat aber etwas an sich, was ihr eine schwere Kindheit bereitet und dafür gesorgt hat, dass sie als “Dalmatiner” oder sogar als “Kuh” bezeichnet wurde. Auf Yuliannas Haut zeigen sich großflächige Muttermale, die auf den ersten Blick tatsächlich befremdlich wirken. Der Grund dafür ist ein Konnataler Nävuszellnävus, eine sehr seltene Hautveränderung, mit der Yulianna bereits auf die Welt kam.

Doch statt sich zu verstecken, geht die attraktive Dame offen mit ihrem Aussehen um. Auf Instagram postet sie regelmäßig Bilder von ihrem Körper – mal bekleidet und mal sehr freizügig. Die Fotos versieht sie dann immer mit einem Spruch, der die Leser ermuntern soll, es ihr gleichzutun und zu ihrem eigenen Körper zu stehen. Ab und an beantwortet Yulianna auch Fragen, die ihr häufiger gestellt werden, wie etwa nach dem ständigen Jucken der Muttermale.

Wow! Very naked Me from a year ago! 😬honestly, I was more embarrassed to put it on the network than to photograph, because @mrelbank is so disposed that you forget that you don’t have any clothes or make-up and discard all your everyday masks♥️ What is staying behind this photo? The U.K. charity which came up with The ‘HOW DO YOU C ME NOW?’ exhibition series in which are people with CMN from 13 countries / 5 continents represented! 😍The idea is to change negative perceptions of visible differences ♥️ BTW for those who don’t know- CMN stands for Congenital Melanocytic Naevus (or naevi), which is a brown or black mole present at birth. They can be very large, covering up to 80% of the body, and very numerous – up to hundreds in one individual. 😲Some people with large or multiple CMN have an increased risk of melanoma (a type of cancer). At the moment, large or multiple CMN are mostly untreatable.😔 Why does it occur? 🤔 It has been discovered that multiple CMN and CMN syndrome are usually caused by a mutation in the gene NRAS that occurs when the baby is developing in the womb. NRAS is a very important gene in fetal development and is involved in melanoma. Much more rarely it can be caused by a mutation in gene BRAF. In around 25% of cases the gene is not yet known.🤷🏽‍♀️ Is it contagious or is it inherited? - No.👊🏽 Does it cause inconvenience??- Yes! such as bullying from society, non-acceptance of oneself, hair that grows on birthmarks, fear of close relationships, itchiness etc..🥺 it is a daily work on yourself and a huuugeee effort to not give in to self-pity and did not listen to the opinions of other people who judge you by how you look like🙄.

On my social media feed I try to post fancy photos that showcase how confident I am about my birthmarks, self acceptance and how I've learned to live with my giant Nevus. But I want to be honest with you and tell you a little bit more about how I actually physically feel and give you some more information about birthmarks. Starting with the hairs, this is a very big and annoying topic for anyone who has many birthmarks and specially a giant one😅.Sooo my back is actually fluffy 🤦🏽‍♀🐯 I can't do anything about that, and even more annoyingly, the hairs on the birthmarks all over my body are thicker and more dense than around the normal skin. We cant wax or shave them and all I have heard from doctor is that I should cut them.. wait a second..CUT them?! Now you can imagine me 🌵 ( for those who are interested I do wax around the birthmark only and that is my own personal risk and I wouldn’t ask anyone to follow my example. Also there were lots of different situations when I really hated this "fluffy stuff". For example you might try to prepare your boyfriend that you have something unusual on your back .. but how do you explain that you are like 🐿 ( fluffy)on touch?! 🤦🏽‍♀ let alone the many awkward questions you get whilst at school or on the beach... Next- The itching is so f***ing bad that it just drives you crazy! Sometimes I literally want to scratch my skin off🙇🏽‍♀ waking up at night because I can't control myself, scratching it which causes the birthmark to swells and forces me to get up and put cold compress on it. Sometimes I really feel like a 🐒. Just imagine some business meeting, of course I'm nervous, if I'm nervous it's itching a hundreds time more and my strength of will not to stretch myself 😩🔨 uuff... I am an adult I now can control myself but children no, some scratch themselves till they draw blood at night. There is no solution besides growing up and learning how to control yourself. It's a part of our "difference" and we should learn to live with this. The last one for today is Melanoma. Skin cancer. Anyone could develop skin cancer because of one birthmark. But we have a hundreds of them! 👇🏽👇🏽

Yes, I also worry about melanoma ( skin cancer). In this time and age- where social media and the internet have become so important, it’s very easy to influence people and followers in this virtual world by using your account as a platform to educate better.👆🏽 That is why my Instagram and Facebook pages are full of photos and text that try to talk to and educate people about CMN( giant Nevus), showing the different skin conditions and other possible health and beauty issues. My aim has always been to show you that yes you can live a sort of normal life no matter what the condition, despite all the struggles I have faced and still do face behind the scenes.👁 Some days I wake up in fear spending hours checking each and every birthmark, looking for any changes in colour, thickness, growing spectrum, because truth is I worry, of course I do. 😔 And the questions I always ask myself is what if this one is really dangerous? Can I trust the doctors recommended online? What Hospital should I go to? Let me be honest - not every “dermatologist”, “oncologist” will know what to do with your birthmarks and whether they really are dangerous. I have spoken to so many in my life and some of them even today are still really shocked that I’m alive or that I haven’t had all my birthmarks removed (at this point I always just get up, turn around and leave ). Am I only one here like this? Who also gets stressed and freaked out not knowing where to go and what to do in situations like this ??!🤔
